Jesu membra nostri
April 13 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Dietrich Buxtehude and other Choral Music for Passiontide
With Leicester Cathedral Choir (Dir. Chris Ouvry-Johns)
Leicestershire Camerata, and David Cowen Organ
April 2019 sees the renewal of our fruitful partnership with Leicester Cathedral, their Director of Music Christopher Ouvry-Johns and his talented singers. Following acclaimed performances of Bach’s St John Passion and Rosenmüller’s Vespers of the Blessed Virgin Mary alongside the Cathedral Youth Choir and Chamber Choir, we now give a joint concert alongside the main Cathedral Choir.
Chorale will sing the beautiful music of Dietrich Buxtehude’s Jesu membra nostri, a cycle of seven short cantatas each addressed to a different part of Christ’s crucified body. Amongst the cantatas the Cathedral Choir will intersperse music for Passiontide from their regular liturgical repertoire.
